Open Street MapOpen Free maps are Free editable maps. These are made with the help of GPS by anyone at anytime. These maps allows us to view,edit and use geographical data in the collaborative way from anywhere on the globe. Like in some areas, We have some buildings and street being built all the time and with the help of OSM we can always locate this location of sneakers on the ground and can get up-to-date data.
More important thing is that information is free. It will be owned by the community- not by any big corporate which means it can be accessed by anyone,anytime and anywhere and can also edit it accordingly. Open street map(OSM) maps are more accurate then anything else on the market in many parts of world depending upon awareness and participation of community. By using OSM we will come up with new applications and winning innovations around the information we recorded.
Maps prepared by OSM have already Started In US and is new in India. These maps
(a)Help to Grow the industrial business in the area of digital mapping and provided the scope of placements of the students in the same area.
(b)Help as track locater to the community such as Traffic Police,Cabs etc.
(c)Help as a navigator for the physically challenged people(Blind).
Department of civil engineering at GNDEC Ludhiana is going to prepare such maps. Initially we are starting from Gill Village and Our target is to Prepare maps of ludhiana city. All the data collected by this will be given away free for others to use.
